Partially Truncated Platonic and Rhombic Dodecahedra
Each of these dodecahedra were modified by truncations at exactly four of their threevalent vertices. As a result, each has four equilateral triangles as faces. In the one above, the Platonic dodecahedron’s pentagonal faces are modified into a dozen irregular … Continue reading

A Rhombic Ring of Icosahedra, Leading to a Rhombic Dodecahedron Made of Icosahedra
As it turns out, eight icosahedra form this rhombic ring, by augmentation: Measured from the centers of these icosahedra, the long and short diagonal of this rhombus are in a (√2):1 ratio. How do I know this? Because that’s the … Continue reading
